Starring Philip Bloom, Nino Leitner, Vincent Laforet, Jeremy Cowart, Tom Lowe, Mitch Aunger and MORE...

Ever wondered how that photographer got 50,000 followers? Or if, in fact, there is any benefit to blogging and tweeting and posting and sharing? Is Social Media a waste of time, or can it be useful?

Follow Ollie, the Director of Virtually Famous, as he attempts to use Social Media to make contact with people around the world to make the film - can he use Social Media to make a film and prove that it can be a useful business and networking tool? Or is Social Media not all it's cracked up to be - a whole lot of people talking about themselves to nobody in particular?

Virtually Famous will interview leading creative people and discuss how they use Social Media as a tool in their businesses, if it has helped build their profile  and grow their networks, and whether or not there's any business generated from it.

Virtually Famous is being filmed and edited by New Zealand filmmaker and professional photographer Ollie Dale, a Master of Photography with the New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography.

"I wanted to meet these people with tens of thousands of followers and see how they do it, and to find out if Social Media really is worth the effort. From what I've seen so far I'm sure many people will look at Social Media in a totally different way."

Virtually Famous will premier in New Zealand in September 2012, and we need your help to get us there! Pick a pledge, be a part of our project, and save the world... ok, well, our world anyway :)

REMEMBER!! Kickstarter Funding is ALL OR NOTHING! That means that we have to reach our goal to receive any money at all! Thank you in advance for supporting our first production!

There will be a collection of time lapse movies featured in the film, and if you back our project at the $50 level or higher you will receive a beautiful 8"x12" timestamped frame from the movie as a photo print, as below:

Love from the team at 22:22 Pictures!
